Specialist Maths with Simon Singh

This term, Wells Specialist Mathematicians in Years 7 to 11 have been taking part in weekly problem solving activities set by popular science author, theoretical and particle physicist and mathematician Simon Singh, author of books such as Fermat’s Last Theorem’ and ‘The Simpsons and their Mathematical Secrets’. 

Recently pupils were invited to win a 30 minute online tutorial with Simon. Year 7 pupil Archie Blee was one of 100 lucky Year 7 and 8 pupils from across the country to get this amazing opportunity, which he benfited from on Monday.

Archie really enjoyed the maths tutorial, learning about truncated primes and puzzle solving strategy.
